Bamboo Goalposts: One Man's Quest to Teach The People's Republic Of China to Love Football. Rowan Simons has lived (and played football) in China for over 20 years and this is his amusing and insightful account of what it's like to live, work and play there. Fulled by his passion to get China to embrace the social and health benefits of amateur football, Rowan has built a football pitch and clubhouse and now heads Club Football, which has a growing membership. He speaks fluent Chinese and his love of the country and its people shines off every page, communicating clearly, humorously and affectionately what contemporary China is like when viewed through Western eyes. Bamboo Goalposts is a personal odyssey inspired by the selfless pioneers of amateur football who took the game around the world in centuries past, but somehow missed China.
